Re: Benoit Paire

He lost

He's WC in Metz and plays Golubev that's winnable of course but he needs to be fresh as he played a lot lately.

Re: Benoit Paire

He beats Golubev in two sets well everybody beats Golubev this year but good job. As usual his schedule is strange he was on clay last week indoor this week and next week he returns on clay I never understand his schedule .

Other good news is that Benoit is not so far to finish the year in top 100 and make AO cut. I think that he needs around 80-100 points to do it.

Gilles Muller is his next opponent so not easy. Good luck. He says in post match interview that since he lost in NY qualies he changed his mind and try to stay more focus on his game

Quote:
Benoît Paire : "C'est toujours un match particulier contre Golubev. Il est capable de coups de génie, mais aussi de se rater complètement. Je savais que je ne devais rien lâcher. Je suis en confiance depuis l'US Open où j'ai perdu dès le 1er tour des qualifications. J'ai eu un déclic. Je me suis rendu compte que je n'étais pas sur la bonne voir. J'ai compris que je devais moins m'énerver et me concentrer davantage sur mon jeu. C'est ce que je fais et ça marche en ce moment. Au prochain tour face à Gilles Muller, je n'ai rien à perdre. Je vais devoir tenir mes jeux de service et me montrer réaliste sur les siens. C'est un match sympa à jouer. Je suis en tout cas très content d'être là."

Re: Benoit Paire

He plays today his second round. There is few lines on him in lequipe about this changement of mind. He calls his parents and his coach after US Open defeats to tell them that he will change since he pay attention about what he eat he stretches his body Well it seems some rackets are still throw but he tries to stay focus. I don't know if it will continue with his changement but with his talent if he's focus he can be amazing

Re: Benoit Paire

I like the sound of those interviews. He definitely has the talent to rise in the rankings significantly if he puts his mind to it.

There isn't a stream, again! I so rarely get to see him play, it's so annoying.

Following livescore, Tie-break in the first set. Benoit loses first set 7-5 in the tiebreak.

If he did win here (now unlikely) it would be the biggest win, tour level, of his career.

Gilles Simon
Dimitrov • Mahut • Paire • Hewitt • Raonic • Berdych • Gulbis • Murray


Thanks for the memories... Andy Roddick.

Re: Benoit Paire

He's not yet totally cool as he said he was disturbed by the crowd during the tie-break where he was leading first. He says now he has to go on challengers and work.

Lost to Marco Crugnola 4-6 6-3 6-7 in the first round of the 42.5k Napoli Challenger on clay. Looks like Benoit will be staying in Italy to play the 42.5k Palermo Challenger next week.

Re: Benoit Paire

Benoît had a painful toe (injury during a football match on saturday) that's why he was not at 100% yesterday ! By the way he will not play the double today !

Re: Benoit Paire

So he withdrew from his R2 match in the Palermo challenger, and it says due to foot/ankle injury. Is he still dealing with the same issue from Napoli? And if I may ask, what's his next scheduled event, he's not on the entry lists for the French indoor challengers.

Thanks in advance

Re: Benoit Paire

On his facebook they said he was not able to run in first round so he gives a WO in the second round so surely the same problem. http://www.facebook.com/pages/Beno%C...44356902270378

To make the AO MD he would need a good week it would be a pity if this stupid injury prevent him to make it

Re: Benoit Paire

Yeah, he's not far away, but he needs to have 1-2 good events more to make Australia. I guess he's going to try to qualify for ATP indoor events, or maybe he'll go to South America on clay. I just hope he makes the top 100 at the end of the season, he's so close.

Re: Benoit Paire

On Tuesday, Benoît has been examined by a doctor and it's reassuring (only an inflammation)!
He needs to rest and hopes to play Stockholm or Moscow's qualifications !

Re: Benoit Paire

He changed his schedule no qualies this WE. He's WC for Orleans. Tough field there so good luck Benoit

He draws Andy Beck not especially good as Benoit is seed.

Re: Benoit Paire

GL to Benoit. He has a tough draw, but if he can make an SF or so, that could be enough to be top 100 and make the AO MD. Unfortunately he has to potentially play Bolelli to get there But I'm rooting for Benoit all the way this week. Hopefully he does well
